    I took some pics, but ended up rearranging the macros later so I guess I need to retake some pics. I have more Red Grape than I know what to do with lol Yes, I'm just back in the bay for summer break

    The conference was in Honolulu, at the Hawai'i Convention Center (Near Waikiki). We went snorkeling in Hanauma Bay. I'm still waiting for my post-doc to finish up some field work in Maui so she can send me more pictures she took from snorkeling. Hm ok, good to know! Thanks!

    Currently airing out my house cause one little clump of Gracilaria didn't like being in a box for 4 days... But wow I forgot how big the portions are from GCE

    I feel ya there! I've been so busy I didn't buy anything new for the tank while I was in school. Although now that I'm home, I may have just ordered a few things from live-plants... LOL I should edit that! That was where I went! We just didn't go out beyond the reef flat as the vis wasn't very good

    HI snorkeling pics! It was a little choppy, so we stayed over the reef flat, but it was still fun to see the curious and friendly fish. The pics don't hae the best composition as there was a glare on the camera screen I couldn't see what I was doing Fun fact: The blue-line snapper is an introduced species meant to be a food fish, but it doesn't grow as big as it does in it's native range (Indo-Pacific). Also, can you see the blenny hiding in one of the pics?

    Thanks! Cool to see you still on NR It's actually not the full thallus I'm pretty sure it's the tips of Halidrys dioica, a brown kelp-like alga So from the top & going clockwise it's: Plocamium, Macroystis, Halidrys, Ulva

    Hawai'i was cool! I got to get dinner & drinks with some awesome post docs, deep-sea NOAA people, etc. And I got to go snorkeling & saw some cool endangered critters. I'll be posting pics soon, I need to get my post doc to send me the ones she took. But anyways, today my coworker gave me a "small" chuck of Dragon's breath, and I found some of the purple photosynthetic sponge I've been wanting! A good day back at work Surprisingly, my sister took good care of my tank, & didn't overfeed (like she did last time). So the tank is happy. however, it seems she didn't water my basil plant... Also, idk if I shared this, but this was my grad cap
